    MOBI M. John Harrison ✓ In Viriconium PDF/EPUB ↠ ✓ viriconium book, In Viriconium PDF/EPUBM John Harrison's prose is filled with a rich idiosyncratic music and the structure of his Viriconium novels is musical too If The Pastel City is a late symphony by Beethoven a classical conventionally constructed work filled with individualistic energy straining to break its bonds and if A Storm of Wings is a symphony by Mahler brooding beauties from an immense modern orchestra fragmented in its structure held together by unexpected key changes and passages of dark humor then In Viriconium must be a piece of chamber music at first deceptively simple then darkening like a string uintet by Schubert something he wrote after the spirochetes and a cosmic melancholy had come to call it soon begins to teem with modernis

    MOBI M. John Harrison ✓ In Viriconium PDF/EPUB ↠ ✓ viriconium book, In Viriconium PDF/EPUB In Viriconium or The Floating Gods Third book in the British author's Viriconium cycle a short novel of great poetic power But beware this is hardly a feel good adventure tale within the genres of either science fiction or fantasy Nay with In Viriconium we visit the city in the grip of plague in many respects we might as well be back in medieval Europe during the Black Death but with M John Harrison's yarn there's some serious off the wall weirdness brewingWeirdness as in the common people inhabiting the Lower City enshrouded in plague not in the usual sense but a kind of thin fog whereby they age uickly or fall victim to various debilitating illnesses Meanwhile the Upper City although spared the fog's deadly infestation sinks into decadence on all levels material spiritual intellectual artisticWeirdness as in the twin princes of the city the fat meaty Barley brothers they weren't human that's a fact rumble and bumble belch fart and vomit while pl

    MOBI M. John Harrison ✓ In Viriconium PDF/EPUB ↠ ✓ viriconium book, In Viriconium PDF/EPUBThis is definitely an interesting turn in the loose trilogy It's so distant and distinct from the other two that it's hard to compare it to them I enjoyed it but I think my expectations colored my reading Storm of Wings was so unbelievably amazing that I was hoping for another book like that This is much subdued about living in the Pastel City while the others are epics about defending or curing it There's a plague but it never seems very ominous regardless how widespread it isAnd the whole story is sort of shadowed by the previous two novels There are echoes of them in here which is very interesting and of course it sort of subverts thos

    MOBI M. John Harrison ✓ In Viriconium PDF/EPUB ↠ ✓ viriconium book, In Viriconium PDF/EPUBI read this in one go with Viriconium Nights and basically I can copy paste the review from that book here verbatimWhat I said about A Storm of Wings 'I wanted to like it than I did' also goes for this book but I did like it betterThere was focus on the actual city which has a weird vibe which I did like The sometimes meandering or even lagging plot of the stories was a bit off putting sometimes this certainly was no page turnerAs an influence on writers as Jeff Vandermeer and KJ Bishop the importance can not be overstated but I'd recommend this mostly to people wanting to dive into the roots of the New Weird genre

    MOBI M. John Harrison ✓ In Viriconium PDF/EPUB ↠ ✓ viriconium book, In Viriconium PDF/EPUBI thought this short novel was fantastic and made me want to dig much deeper into the Viriconium collection The main threat in this novel is a supernatural plague which bleeds Viriconium and its inhabitants of their vibrancy and lifeforce and allows Harrison shows off his talent for writing the most beautiful descriptions of ugly diseased corrupt things There are also murderous dwarves tarot cards and in depth discussions on painting and art but beneath it all is the consistent theme of Harrison's work fantastic fiction cannot exist outside of the culture that prod
